It was a struggle to finish this book. The conversation was inane, the plot boring. I didn't care for the characters, and we were given only a glimpse of the one interesting character in the book. This book received rave reviews, so maybe I'm just not intellectual enough to grasp the greatness of this book. Or maybe the emperor isn't wearing any clothing.
